We describe a case of an extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) in an HIV‐positive child. An 11‐ year‐old, HIV‐infected female patient, on antiretroviral therapy since 2010, was referred with difficult to control asthma and bronchiectasis. The lesion was identified on CT chest following persisting reduced air entry and unilateral wheezing on the right. Rigid bronchoscopy identified a large pedunculated fleshy mass in the right main bronchus. Biopsy revealed it to be a plasmacytoma. Right main bronchus sleeve resection was done with complete removal of the tumor. Histology confirmed it to be a solitary plasmacytoma local...
